Jumping his Harley off a ramp, but gave no heed to calculations

We all want to jump off a ramp and feel weightless with our bike. Doing that may sound dead easy, but it involves a lot of things in play. Ramp angle, approach speed, bike weight, fuel mass, rider mass, and some basic mathematical solutions to land you safe back on the ground.

This guy here on a Harley thought he could pull off a Travis Pastrana jump. He did get a few things right though: two ramps, a bike and himself. Unfortunately, he must have left his brains hanging in the backyard and forgot to pack it.

Video: Smart cops round up not-so-smart dirt riders

Boston and Massachusetts State Police have finally had it enough of millennial riders recklessly riding around town on their illegal off-road machines like dirt bikes and ATVs’ and causing a nuisance to the general public.

Last week, the state troopers tried to contain and block off a part of the Massachusetts’ I-93 freeway to apprehend a large group of such idiots, only to assure of a chaotic situation. At least three injured, seven arrested, and 20 seized off-road machines was the outcome of this.

If you are trying yourself to do the same, why not take it a step higher? Here is Jimmy Hill, Andy DiBrino, and Alan Birtwistle going full Hooligan on the all-new electric 2018 Redshift MXR Motocross.

Because the owner failed to pay a ranson

Stories of bike thefts in the UK have reached surprising levels. Impudent British brats in Bristol uploaded a video on their handle on the social media platform, Instagram, where they are seen lighting a vintage Triumph Thunderbird on fire only because the owner of the bike refused to pay them a ransom of £1000 ($1,400).

This video in discussion had been posted on the closed-group Instagram account “biketakerrr”, which have now been removed after it created sparks for being violent in nature. Luckily, we did get access to a couple of snapshot images taken from the Instagram account.

KTM’s life saving electronics deciphered

Watch KTM MTC, ABS, MSC and launch control working behind the scenes

A rider is not born but is made. There is absolutely no harm in accepting that you are not the best rider and that there is always a better rider out there. But, that does not mean you don’t try to improve on it. The more you ride, the more opportunity you will find to try and match synergies with your motorcycle.

The same also applies to motorcycles. There is always a better one out there. So manufacturers and engineers come up with new technologies and innovation that make that same motorcycle perform better and safer than before. And KTM is one of those who is world renowned for giving us bikes that loves walking on the edge of performance and handling.

Helping them do that is not just their mad mechanicals, but some really smart electronic wizardry. They tap into multiple parameters to give the rider the optimum control of their bikes without losing the joy of riding.

A 427 lbs bike on the head, and climbing a ladder

Thinking of it makes me stretch my neck. An average human being will struggle to lift 100 lbs over his head. But folks in India are used to lifting heavy pots filled with water over their head for centuries. Even today, you will find vendors selling fruits, toys and all kinds of stuff from a basket over their head.

Balancing anything on your head is no easy task. When you make that thing a motorcycle, and you scale a ladder as you do it, you enter the realms of the superhuman.

Have you ever tried jumping off a cliff, on a bike?

Have you ever tried jumping off a cliff, on a bike?

Start on a bike. End up in a parachute.

Motocrossers. All they need is a wacky little dirt bike and a very big ramp to shoot themselves up in the air long enough to showcase their talent and land safely. I’m sure you wished you could do that too.

But Pro MotoX rider Brad O’Neal here has taken this concept to the next level. Part of an old crazy Crusty Demons gang, this kid here came up with an idea to go all out crazy with his dirt bike. In a video titled "Follow your Fears," Brad explains how he planned to zoom up a ridiculously vertical ramp and shooting himself as high as he can go before pulling his chute and, hopefully, floating to the ground.
